These are sad news, because Exploratorium is an important image feed for all of us who are working on MER imagery (which played an important part also for TPS/UMSF's historic success).
=> Emily, Doug, please, can JPL (the MER team) give an help ? wheel.gif
Thanks a lot in advance for all you can do (if possible) for your TPS/UMSF members

Stu reports over on his blog that the JPL server that feeds Exploratorium is dead and will not be replaced. There may be a workaround, but that source of images may be gone for good.


Hmmm...maybe a Kickstarter project to buy JPL a new server? I think that would be allowable under their guidelines. Wonder if JPL would go for it? I'd put in 20$

Just added more images into the Pancam foreground color mosaic. There are two images that were not part of the foreground mosaic sequences such as the horizon shot, and one other image that was taken closer to the rover, but they overlapped quite nicely so I threw those in aswell. pancam.gif

From the latest update:

Opportunity will soon be backing down off her winter perch and resume driving on the near-level terrain around the north end of Cape York.

North end - I like the sound of that!

I think I was a little too hasty when I read the update earlier this evening. I totally missed the second half of that sentence. Thanks for highlighting it, fredk. smile.gif

Maybe we'll get a glimpse of the thing after all. unsure.gif

Great, James. I made a version with lower distorsion (locally flat terrain) and more uniform luminosity/contrast...

Great to see updates to Exploratorium coming up again.

And you Paolo look into drive direction pancams. While usually well informed Science daily just said Opportunity were hibernating and wont drive for quite a while still. Serious, some tidbits on Stony brook Mars rover group so I add it for reference.
